Colour Me 57

I've been enjoying using Night of Navy in recent weeks, so was pleased to see that the challenge this week at Colour Me was to use it with a neutral.

I've quite often made cards where I've highlighted part of the stamped image by raising it up but in this card, tried something a bit different by sinking part of the image. The lighter blue foliage is from re-stamping the same stamp without re-inking it, so it's a much lighter version of Night of Navy.

Update: So happy to have this card chosen by Tara as a Colour Connoisseur!

Card: Night of Navy, Whisper White
Ink: Night of Navy
Stamps: Clearly Besotted Leafy Accents, SU Kinda Eclectic (the butterfly), SU Wetlands (the sentiment)
Other:  SU Butterfly punch, Night of Navy marker to edge the butterfly, dimensionals to lift the rectangular panel, Circle framelits, brad base and Night of Navy candydot, linen twine, Stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp.
